Calls Upper
Keys Business
Group 'rapacious'
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Peter Anderson, secretary,
general of the Conch Republic,
goes to court on Plantation Key
today to defend what he sees as
his intellectual rights to the
Conch Republic name against
usurpers in the Upper Keys.
"Over the years, I have care-
fully developed an image for the
Conch Republic based on the
idea that our foreign policy is the
mitigation of world tension
through the exercise of humor,"


Anderson told the Keynoter.
"That has been my work of the
last 20 years. That and bringing
thousands of visitors to Key
West on an annual basis for the
independence celebration."
Anderson has been putting on
the Conch Republic Indepen-
dence Celebration in Key West
for the past 18 years. Starting in
December 2007, he began work-
ing with the Upper Keys
Business Group on hosting its'
own version of the event.
"I was thrilled, absolutely
thrilled," Anderson said. "I went
up there with great joy and jubi-
lation in my heart that we were


See ANDERSON / 2


Peter Anderson, secretary general of the Conch Republic,
calls the Upper Keys Business Group's lawsuit a 'colossal waste'
and says he wants to bring together 'Conch Republicans'from
all regions of the Keys. See what the Upper Keys Business
Group has to say about that, on page 12.

ANDERSON / From 1

going to finally, maybe, have a
Keys-wide, or Keys-long, cele-
bration of our independence."
In the past, Snapper's
restaurant on Seaside Avenue in
Key Largo had hosted a Conch
Republic weekend in which
Anderson allowed the use of
Conch Republic symbols, slo-
gans and like.
"This was a major festival,"
Anderson said, "and as such,
would require licensing from
me. This was a whole anotherr
animal from his little week-
end."
Anderson and the UKBG,
however, were never able to
reach a satisfactory licensing
agreement. Anderson said this
in no way should paint him as
greedy or belie some desire to
contain the event only to Key
West.
"Some years ago, to a great
deal of political heat in Key
West, I amended the Conch
Republic flag to include
'Florida Keys' as well as 'Key
West' on the flag," says
Anderson. "We're all the
Conch Republic."
Referring to his meeting
with the UKBG in December of
2007, Anderson said, "I essen-
tially gave them the keys to the
kingdom when it comes to put-
ting on a Conch Republic
Independence Celebration."
Initially, Anderson asked for
$3,000 for his services during
the first year of the festival and
subsequently, living wages
with a share in the profits, if
there were any. But time passed
and no agreement was reached.
The UKBG was not able to
put together an independence
event in 2008.
"Knowing that they would
be back, the idea was to let the
tempers cool down. We sort of
won the day."
Then August rolled around
and Anderson learned that the
UKBG was trying again to get
an Upper Keys event planned
and again, no licensing agree-
ment was reached. Instead, the
UKBG filed suit against
Anderson. The two parties meet
for a pre-trial conference today.
"This is a ludicrous and
ridiculous waste of money and
time and energy that can be
much better spent building a
festival, reinforcing the Conch
Republic, working together,


creating something fun and
funny. It's a colossal waste. It's
rude and my most seminal
statement about them and this
whole thing is it's unfunny. It's
just not funny."
Current sentiments aside,
Anderson plans on extending
the olive branch and said his
first phone call would be to the
UKBG in regards to putting on
a licensed event.
"That's what the Conch
Republic is all about,"
Anderson said. "They don't
understand that.
Anderson has this to say to
Upper Keys residents: "You've
got a group of businessmen,


some of them you failed to
elect to office on a number of
occasions, claiming to repre-
sent you as the Conch
Republic. I know there are
more loyal Conch Republicans
loyal to the Conch Republic
and its spirit and all it seeks to
bring to the world than there
are loyal to this rapacious
group of business people. The
idea that they can stand up in
public and claim to represent
you, I find appalling and pre-
sumptuous. The office of the
Secretary General stands four-
square behind all the Conch
Republic."


Solid waste assessments


not covering the cost


TRASH / From I

Marathon Garbage Service and
work on a contract of our own,"
Marathon City Manager Clyde
Burnett told the Keynoter this
week.
Skip Haring, administrative
assistant to Layton Mayor
Norman Anderson, represent-
ed that city at Wednesday's
meeting in Key West.
"If you would have held
this discussion in the Middle
Keys, you would' have heard
the same accolades for our
provider," he said. Numerous
Key Haven residents showed
up to support their provider,
Waste Management Inc., at the
meeting.
Burnett sent a letter on
behalf of the City Council to
county Mayor George
Neugent stating Marathon's
intentions.
"There seems no reason for
Monroe County to try to fix
something that is not broken.
This is one of the few services
in the Keys that is generally
well managed and actually
gets the job done every day,"
he wrote in the letter.
Marathon Garbage picks up
for trash twice a week and
once a week for recycling,
landscaping and "white"
goods such as old appliances.
"I don't think you can get
anything better... than to have
it go by your house five times
a week for $5.62 a week," said


Burnett.
Annual solid waste assess-
ments through the county are
$292 per household and have
been since 1995.
According to a staff presen-
tation at last Wednesday's
County Commission meeting,
that rate has not been covering
total costs for several years.
The cost to the county per res-
idence in the Middle Keys, for
instance, is $319.04.
While no action was taken
at the meeting, staff presented
the commission with four pos-
sible solutions: extend the cur-
rent contracts for five years,
go out to bid immediately,
renegotiate terms and rates
with franchisees or extend
current contracts one year and
develop a long-term "solid
waste master plan."
Gastesi strongly recom-
mended a hybrid of the third
and fourth options, saying
"every other sophisticated
community has a master
plan."
"These guys are doing a
great job, but what else can we
do? Signing a five-year con-
tract, we'll never know,"
Gastesi said.
Keys Sanitary and Ocean
Reef are the garbage providers
in the Upper Keys and Ocean
Reef.
The county has until May
30 to provide 120 days notice
if it intends on not renewing
the contracts.


Habitat for
smalitooth sawfish

A rule that would desig-
nate critical habitat areas in
Florida Bay for the small-
tooth sawfish will remain
.open for. an extended public
comment session to run
through Feb. 13.
Smalltooth sawfish, desig-
nated as an endangered
species, use the bay for critical
nursery grounds, according to
the National Marine Fisheries
Service.
"Proiecting these [shallow
water] features tl di pro ide
juveniles the habitat features
necessary to survive and
mature into adulthood, result-
ing in population growth,"
according to a rule summary.
The proposed rule is at

Storm caused by low pressure system


STORM / From 7

wind getting blown in, then
sucked out, and then blown back
in, making a mess of the dining
room.
"Everything just exploded,"
says Kassie Smith, who was
waiting on tables Monday night.
"We had plates everywhere.
It was just completely demol-
ished. Pretty much like a mini
hurricane," Ira McBride, anoth-
er waitress working that night,
told the Keynoter.
The dining room, which had
been full of diners, was a mess,
but no one was hurt, and the
only real damage was to sec-
tions of the thatched roof and
the neon sign that stands tall
next to U.S.. 1. The neon letters
were lying in pieces on the
ground.
"It was very, very weird,"
says Bobby Kay, general man-
ager of The Island. "But we
made it through Hurricane
Wilma. So this is a walk in the
park."
He said most diners fled
when the winds made a mess of
the dining room on Monday
night, and most of those who
hadn't paid their bills came back
the next morning to settle up.
Kay wouldn't take their money:
Everyone who was eating at The
Island on Monday night when
the storm blew in was 'comped.'
Matt Strahan, meteorologist
with the National Weather
Service in Key West, said the
storm was caused by a low-pres-
sure system moving through
Central Florida.
"It's a rare thing to have this
type of low, it's more of what
you see in the Midwest," he said
on Tuesday.
In fact, the weather condi-
tions in the Keys did have more
in common with tornadoes than
with hurricanes, with the sudden
drop in pressure and very high
winds moving over a narrow
area.
Weather researchers were at
The Island on Tuesday, and at
the Marathon airport, looking to
see if a small tornado or water-
spout might have traveled in
with the storm.
Rainfalls recorded by the
National Weather Service on
Monday night, between 8 and
8:30 p.m.: .81 inches in Key
West; -.63 inches on Big Coppitt
Key; 1.13 inches on Cudjoe

Who is Raul Castro?


Ex-CIA analyst __1__-
speaks in Marathon j
Thursday afternoon
Keynoter Staff'
4 .. .][


Brian Latell's book 'After Fidel: Raul Castro and the Future of
Cuba's Revolution' came out in October of 2005, just nine
months before Fidel transferred power to his younger brother,
Raul.


- .1


Is Raul the more radical of
the Castro brothers? Or the
softer one? In 1959, after the
revolution, it was Raul who ini-
tiated the first talks with the
Soviet Union, and rushed head-
long into efforts to overthrow
other Latin American govern-
ments, while Fidel wanted to
take it slow. And it was Raul
who built, by force of character
(and with the help of execu-
tions) a military that has made
it possible for the Castro broth-
ers to keep a stranglehold on
power for fifty years. But it was
Raul who cried when told of his
father's death, not Fidel, and
Raul who stroked his mother's
head as she lay dying. And
since taking power in 2006,
Raul has talked about opening
* up Cuba's agriculture to private
enterprise and opening up
Cuban society to freer debate.
So is he harder line? Or isn't

he?
"My main
conclusion
about him... is
that he is a
personality
divided in
almost two


L ___ halves, says
LATELL Brian Latell,
LATELL the former
CIA analyst "who has been
invited by the Friends of the
Marathon Library to speak at
St. Columba Episcopal Church
tomorrow afternoon as part of
the library's look at Cuba fifty
years after the revolution.
Latell is the first to write
what could be called a biogra-
phy of Raul Castro. And he
takes the opportunity in "After
Fidel: Raul Castro and the
Future of Cuba's Revolution"
to deconstruct what he says are
myths about the younger broth-
er.
One: Raul is not, and never
was, Fidel's patsy, according to
Latell. He is a superb military
leader and tactician, on whom
Fidel came to rely. As Latell
recounts a former Cuban intel-
ligence officer telling him in
Miami - if the Cuban revolu-
tion can be considered an ongo-
ing drama, Raul would be the
producer and Fidel the director.
Fidel, in other words, was the
visionary, yes. But it was Raul
who made it all possible.
Brian Latell now spends half
the year living on Key
Biscayne -and teaching a course
at the University of Miami on
U.S. policy and Latin America.
He also frequently appears on
CBS4 in Miami, and writes
newspaper Op-Eds. But most of
Latell's career was spent inside
the bowels of U.S. intelligence,
focusing on Cuba.
In 1964, he went to work for
the CIA, as an analyst on the
Cuba desk, and came to spend
the bulk of the next thirty years
studying Fidel Castro and his
brother Raul. He was an Air
Force intelligence officer in the
late 60s, and from 1990-1994
was the National Intelligence
Officer for Latin America. .
Latell's book "After Fidel"
came out in October 2005, just
nine months before Fidel, ail-
ing from either colon or stom-
ach cancer, named Raul his
successor and handed over

power. So has Raul shown him-
self to be the kind of leader
Latell foresaw? "I think so,"
says Latell, who describes in
his book the Castro brothers'
wild rural childhood in Biran,
in the Oriente province in east-
ern Cuba. Fidel was spoiled by
his father, given cars, and a
charge card for a department
store in Havana. Raul, on the
other hand, was his mother's
son, though their close relation-
ship did not stop him from seiz-
ing her cane fields at the time
of the revolution.
What strikes the reader here,
and should draw the close
attention of students of political
science, is the dominance of
ideology above all things. Raul
loved his mother, but he took
her home, her farm, and most
of everything she owned, in the
name-of the -revolution. In other
scenes, he orders executions,
and kills with his own hands,
men accused of some small
offenses.
Latell's book hasn't made
everyone happy. In a phone
interview with the Keynoter, he
relates that some Miami
Cubans thought he was too soft
on the Castros. It's hard to find
evidence of this, though Latell
writes of Fidel in the prologue:
"There was actually a lot of
sympathy for what he was try-
ing to do in Cuba, and we
appreciated that he was one of a
kind."
"I don't talk about that on
the record," Latell told the.
Keynoter when asked about his
political views, but admits that
as a young man at the CIA in
the 60s, he was a liberal, and
supported Fidel Castro's
"domestic revolutionary objec-
tives" - such as those involv-
ing racial equality, literacy, and
urban reform.

TraumaStar safe for now


3-2 vote with
Carruthers and
Murphy voting 'no'
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The much-debated TraumaStar
air ambulance service provided by
Monroe County and the Sheriff's
Office appears safe for the time
being.
TraumaStar narrowly escaped
open competition last Wednesday
when the County Commission
voted to not seek new proposals
for the service. The vote was 3-2
with Commissioners Heather
Carruthers and Sylvia Murphy
dissenting.
Carruthers said while- the
results of a November referen-
dum can't be ignored - county
residents agreed to a tax to fund.
TraumaStar - she feels that it
was "poorly worded."
"We never did due diligence
on what's the best way to provide
that service," Carruthers said.
County Mayor George
Neugent disagreed with
Carruthers and said the county
did due diligence on Trauma Star
in 2004 when the service was
first approved.
"We have beat this horse
for four years," he said. "I'm
over this .and I'm supporting
TraumaStar."


Neugent cited a news report
that another Keys provider,
LifeNet, disbanded a 17-member
helicopter crew in Tallahassee
effective Jan. 30. LifeNet provides
service out of Lower Keys
Medical Center in Key West and
out of Kendall-Tamiami Executive
Airport in Miami-Dade County.
"The same situation can hap-
pen to us. Many people won't
move to areas that don't provide
good hospitals and life-saying
services such as TraumaStar,"
Neugent said.
Key West resident and
LifeNet employee Alana Scalia
spoke out against the referendum
and in favor of a a request for
proposals.
"I feel people voted with the
misinformation they were given,
thinking without the tax they
would have no transport," she said.
Scalia even got into an argu-
ment with the commission over
details from a recent traffic acci-
dent and which service should
have responded. County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton intervened after
Fire. Chief Jim Callahan and
Sheriff's Office Colonel Rick
Ramsay were called to the podi-
um to rebut Scalia.
There's "no need to get into a
debate with a speaker," Hutton said.
The TraumaStar referendum
passed in November with 55 per--
cent of the vote. It failed to gain

State Farm's exit

demands state act

Ever since Hurricane Andrew battered South Florida, proper-
ty-insurance companies have demanded more from Florida
customers while giving less in return. Now that state regulators
have denied State Farm Insurance an untimely rate request for
a whopping 47 percent hike, the company has decided to get
out of the property-insurance business in Florida, leaving cus-
tomers with 1.2 million policies in the lurch.
This may be a good business decision for State Farm, but
-isn't for the people of Florida. The state has tried to accommo-
date property-insurance companies, at a cost to consumers in
the form of higher premiums, personal exposure and more out-
of-pocket expenditures to protect homes from storms. Among
the actions:
* Reducing the risk to insurers by creating a state-backed
company for the most vulnerable properties.
+ Adopting new pricing mechanisms that produce higher
premiums.
* Allowing for weaker coverage (higher deductibles) to limit
payouts.
* Providing incentives for consumers to install protective
upgrades, thus limiting damage and payouts.
* Allowing national companies like State Farm to create
Florida subsidiaries that protect the parent company from risk.
It is not hard to see why insurers don't like windstorm poli-
cies. The risk is unpredictable, and payouts can be expensive.
The only way to provide coverage that allows a profit, they
argue, is to limit exposure, which Florida has done, and collect
high premiums.
But Floridians are just about tapped out - and homeowners
must be wondering if the actual goal isn't zero risk and maxi-
mum profits.
The state has to take corrective action to offset State Farm's
decision. If the company won't write policies with a higher
risk, it should not be allowed to cherry-pick other, more lucra-
tive lines of business like automobile policies. These should
become the province of companies willing to help Floridians
protect their property by offering to write windstorm and casu-
alty policies, as well.
This should not be done to punish State Farm. It should be a
business decision by the people of Floritla to attract companies
that can fill a void in our marketplace.
Here in the Keys, Citizens Property Insurance Corp. has
become the dominant carrier and a three-year freeze on.
Citizens rates may be lifted this year, meaning higher rates.
If State Farm's decision to abandon Florida property insur-
ance business causes state leaders to focus on the problem, the
move may ultimately be a blessing in disguise.

Air ambulance issue deserves more research


EDITOR:
I'm extremely disappointed in what I
thought was an enlightened and fiscally respon-
sible Monroe County Commission.
In order to close a gaping budget, many
essential services in Monroe County have been
forced to curtail operations. These are services
that provide the important safety net for hun-
dreds if not thousands of the most vulnerable
among us.
It is in this light that I am particularly disap-
pointed that it appears to this observer that one
part of the Monroe County budget is a sacred
cow. Of course a sacred cow is the term used to
describe anything that is "off limits." I'm
speaking of Trauma Star.
I do not profess to know the answers, but I
can sure come up with a list of questions and I
expect my County Commission to be equally
curious, but they are not.
There is little argument that Monroe County
needs the services of an air ambulance, because
we are too distant from and will never have the
services nor facilities required for a full-fledged
Trauma Center. The question then is: What is
the most cost-effective way to provide air
ambulance service to the Keys?
Hiding behind the lame Referendum is inad-
equate. Such referenda usually fulfill the expec-
tations of their authors, because the wording is
prejudicial. The so-called Trauma Star referen-
dum might as well have said "If you are lying


on the road bleeding, do you want the Trauma
Star helicopter to carry you to a hospital?" No
wonder a majority said yes.
It should have asked something like, "Given
that all of Monroe County needs air ambulance
services, do you want the County government
to find the most cost-effective means to provide
that service?"
What really rankles is that it appears that the
majority of our County Commissioners do not
want to know the answers to obvious questions,
like "Are there other air ambulance services
that would like to provide the essential service
to Monroe County, and what would they cost
the taxpayer compared to the benefits?" I've
circulated a decision matrix that would be a
starting point for providing an objective.answer
to such questions. I hope that others can
improve on it with the goal of identifying the
greatest service at the least cost. That matrix is
available at www.johnhammerstrom.com.
Oh, and don't fall for the'"Upper Keys ver-
sus Lower Keys" distraction. Everyone with
whom I've spoken agrees that first-class air
ambulance service is a top priority for all of
Monroe County. We must evaluate this expen-
sive service with the same objectivity we have
the rest of the budget, and I hope the County
Commission will recognize the wisdom and
economic justice of doing so.

Shoreline cleanup demands support


EDITOR:
We recently vacationed in the beautiful
Florida Keys and while there we took a fish-
ing charter with Sea Dog Charters. We had a
very good time.
On the way out of the marina, we noticed
the shoreline. Someone has been using it for
a dump, for quite a while it appears.
This shoreline would be the southern
shore that parallels U.S. I and runs from Sea

Coastal flooding a myth?
EDITOR:
I have read countless articles and
columns like the one I read in The Miami
Herald Jan. 30, 2009, by H.D.S. Greenway
titled, "Coastline in Retreat," and how many
of us will be underwater in 100 years due to
global warming.
I came to the Keys in 1955 and have been
fishing and diving in the same areas since
then. The water lines on the bridges and
barely submerged rocks are just as they were
50 years ago.
I have seen no evidence the Florida Keys
has been or will be disappearing under the
sea. Scientists have been feuding about this
for years.
I'll keep my eye on the waterlines on the
bridges and keep you informed.

Dog's channel to about where Porky's
restaurant is.
We feel that this eyesore does not help the
tourist business that the Keys rely on, and
where we live it would not be allowed.
Perhaps local authorities have not seen it
so we thought we'd bring it to your atten-
tion.
We loved Marathon and when we come
back, hopefully we'll not see this stuff when
we fish with Sea DYog the next time.

recommendations
to commissioners
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


The Key West City
Commission, at Mayor Morgan
McPherson's urging, voted earli-
er this month to create a
Sustainability Advisory Board.
"We need to look at sustain-
ability for the city on a whole,"
McPherson said at the Jan. 6
commission meeting. He men-
tioned including things like eco-
friendly building, energy con-
sumption and recycling.
"The city of Key West needs a
set of eyes, hands and ears work-
ing on a long-term strategic
plan," he said.
The measure didn't pass on
Jan. 6: Commissioner Bill Verge


called it "too broad-based" and
resident Margaret Romero called
it "just another committee with
no power."
But the commission, appar-
"ently, had a change of heart. At
the Jan. 21 meeting, a
Sustainability Advisory Board
was created with only Com-
missioner Teri Johnston dissent-
ing.
Board members have not yet
been appointed. McPherson says
there will be nine positions, two
of which will be individuals
under 18. McPherson will make
three appointments, including
the two minors, who will serve
one-year terms. Each of the com-
missioners will appoint one of
the remaining six board members
to three-year terms.
According to the city's web-
site, www.keywestcity.com,
the Sustainability Advisory


Board will "promote the sustain-
ability of the city as whole"
including making policy recom-
mendations and community edu-
cation.
In early January, Gov.Charlie
Crist established the Florida
Energy and Climate Com-
mission, arid named as its chair
Jim Murley, the husband of Amy
Kimball-Murley, Key West's
planning director.
Murley works as the Director
of Florida Atlantic University's
Center for Urban and
Environmental Solutions and
told the Keynotej" that his com-
mission specifically focuses on
alternative energy and .climate
change, which is all a part of sus-
tainability.
"I think sustainability is per-
haps a larger umbrella that deals
with a lot of other issues,"
Murley said, mentioning rising
sea levels, recycling and auto
emissions. "I hope that our state


commission will be able to rein-
force that to the city [of Key
West] and Monroe County. We
should encourage and, where we
can, support local efforts."
Ten Johnston, who proposed
a recycling law that was adopted
by the city, is still against the new
board. "I certainly would like to
promote anything that promotes
green activities," Johnston said.
But, she said, the new board's
charge was not clearly defined..
"I didn't think it was well
explained. You need to put in
nuts and bolts. We have been
talking about, for months, the
need to put committees in place
that can do something."

and secondary education, SAT
and ACT test performance also
declined, the report concluded.
Using national test results,
the ALEC Report Card on
American Education ranked
the 50 states and the District of
Columbia, one being the best
and 51 the worst. Minnesota
placed first and Washington,
D.C., last. Florida ranked
,36th.
"The Report Card on
American Education clearly
shows there is no correlation
between educational dollars
spent and student achievement
in our traditional public school
system," said Andrew T.
LeFevre, the author of the
report and executive director
of the Pennsylvania-based
REACH Foundation. "At some
point, state policymakers must
ask themselves if more of the
same is going to produce a dif-
ferent result."
On the National Education
Association's ranking of
teacher pay, Florida showed
improvement. Teachers in
Florida last year earned an
average of $46,930, putting
the state 29th out of 50 states
studied.
Georgia, which trailed
Florida a decade ago, has now
jumped to 18th nationwide
with an average teacher mak-


ing $51,560..
The NEA claims 3.2 million
teacher and educator members
and 'has lobbied state legisla-
tors and Congress on behalf of
education issues.
The Legislative Exchange
Council report looked at data
from 1986-87 and 2007-08 on
state and federal funding,
school resources, graduation
rates, GED completion rates,
and school-choice initiatives,
including tax credit, scholar-
ship, and charter school pro-
grams.
With the new administra-
tion in Washington expected to
ramp up education spending
through a host of new public
programs, the evidence is
undeniably clear, the ALEC
study says: An increase in
government funding does not
necessarily produce corre-
sponding results.
"States across the country
have proved that through edu-
cation reforms rooted in free-
dom and accountability, more
can be done with less," said
Jeff W. Reed, director of
ALEC's Education Task Force.
"But it is up to state lawmakers
to give taxpayers a break and
parents and students the oppor-
tunity to choose what works
best for them."

Church to sell trailer park


St. Mary's hopes
funds will help
offset school cuts
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

In yet another sign of the
times, St. Mary Star of the Sea
Catholic Church in Key West
is trying to sell off a church-
owned trailer park in Old Town
to make up for a loss of school
-funding.
The Archdiocese of Miami
owns the one-acre parcel con-
nected to the grounds of the
church and Mary Immaculate
Star of the Sea School. The
property, called the Key West
Trailer Court, at 1015
Simonton St., is home to
around 25 trailer homes. The
Archdiocese of Miami, which
governs St. Mary's, picked up
the property in the 1950s and is
now in the process of selling it.
Zachary Bentley, the parish
manager, said the sale has been
in the works for several years
and has been speeded up by
cuts in .Archdiocese funding
for Mary Immaculate Star of
the Sea School.
"We'd been managing it for
all these years since it was pur-
chased," Bentley said. The
decision to aggressively pursue
selling came, he says, "when it
became evident that the school
was going to need additional
money to stay operational."
"It's something everybody,
the Archdiocese and parish,
decided," Bentley said.
"Given the financial situation


of the school, the sooner the
better."
Peter Batty, permanent dea-
con at St. Mary's, said the peo-
ple now living at-the trailer
park are essentially tenants of
the parish and of the
Archdiocese.
"Our hope is that if we sell,
those tenants would be able to
stay," Batty said.
Batty wouldn't say how
much money the Archdiocese
is trying to get for the property,
but the Monroe County
Property Appraiser's Office
pegs the assessed value at
$2,264,074. The property, in
between Truman and Virginia
streets, is zoned historic resi-
dential'.
In addition to selling the
property, . Mary Immaculate
school has had to redouble
fundraising efforts to keep
afloat in light of a $38,000 cut
in annual funding from the
Archdiocese of Miami.
Principal Beth Harris said
the funding cuts came early in
January and staff immediately
got together with the parents of
the school's 157 students,
ranging from pre-school to
eighth grade, to see what could
be done.
"When we heard it, we just
kicked into gear," Harris said.
"We got everyone on the same
track that Catholic education is
important."
Since then, St. Mary's has
been able to raise around
$100,000 for the school -
$26,000 of which came last
weekend with the annual Rock


'n Roast fundraiser.
"I don't think anybody is
not affected by the economy
these days," Harris said. But,
"We've been here for 140
years and we're here to stay.
We have the most dedicated
parents."
St. Mary's situation is not
unique. Last weekend, The"
Miami Herald reported that the
Archdiocese of Miami is clos-
ing five Catholic schools in the
Miami area.
. "The church is not immune
to what individuals, families,
other nonprofits and corpora-
tions have been dealing with
for almost two years," Mary
Ross Agosta, spokeswoman for
the Archdiocese of Miami, told
the Herald.


The Archdiocese of Miami acquired the Key West Trailer Court
in the 1950s, and is now looking to sell it to raise money for
Mary Immaculate Star of the Sea School.

New commission
makes fast pitch
to council
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

They expected marketing
plans and a 'big picture' vision
for the future of Marathon, but
that isn't what they got from the
newly formed Economic
Development Commission last
Tuesday.
The Marathon City Council
appeared a bit perplexed by the
first round of recommendations
from the newly formed commis-
sion.
"Most of the stuff they recom-
mended we already have in the
works," Mayor Mike Cinque told
the Keynoter.
Among the group's recom-
mendations to the council last
Tuesday: supporting a preference
ordinance for local contractors,
suspending or reducing fees to
transfer building rights, a work-
shop on the city's height limit for
new buildings, support for a
Tourist Development Council


fourth-penny bed tax, waiving
impact and other fees for new
building and awarding building
permits only to those ready to
proceed. -
Virtually all of the recommen-
dations were real estate-related
and meant to encourage new
construction in a struggling
economy.
Commission member Peter
Rosasco said the group wanted to
address current concerns in its
initial meetings. Now, he said,
discussions will turn to the future
of the city.
"You're going to see us focus
on the branding of Marathon and
a marketing plan to sustain a real
tourism base," Rosasco said.
Daniel Samess, executive
director of the Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce, also sits
on the commission. He also said
the group now intends to turn its
attention to marketing.
"One of our overall goals is
doing a vision and part of any
vision is marketing. We're going
to start tackling that, but it's
going to be a process," he told the
Keynoter.

Samess said plans are in the
works for a monthly e-mail
update on the city to be sent to
travel writers across the country.
He's also working on partnering
with other chambers nationwide
to offer travel discounts to their
members in the form of a coupon
booklet.
Meanwhile, the Chamber
already has a separate marketing
commission drumming up ideas
on how to promote the city.
"The actions taken by the
group may help immediately
affect some activity in the city,"
said Vice Mayor Don Vasil.
"Granted, right now our economy
is based strictly on real estate and
tourism and it might not have
been a bad idea to address what
we already have."
The commission was Vasil's
brainchild. He suggested its for-
mation on July 22 after perceived
resistance from fellow council
members to expand the City of
Marathon Marina in increments
of 20 slips.
Vasil has said he's concerned
the city isn't paying enough
attention to its economic future,
which he believes lies in Boot
Key Harbor and the marina.

Mayor has designs on Marathon's main drag


Community panel
to examine the
look of U.S. 1
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Controversy over a height
variance for the Hampton Inn has
led Mayor Mike Cinque to pro-
pose a re-examination of the look
of everything on the U.S. 1 corri-
dor in the Middle Keys.
A resolution sponsored by
Cinque creating a temporary U.S.
1 Corridor Design Review Task
Force is scheduled to be heard by
the City Council at its Feb. 10
meeting.
"I want to get a task force out
there made up of a good cross
section of the community. I want
it out there," Cinque told the
Keynoter. "That's why we incor-'
porated, so people could, have the
government closer to them."
According to -Cinque, the
group would meet on a variety of
U.S. 1 issues, including: land-
scaping, a sign ordinance, set-
backs and height. He said a slack
in the real estate market makes it


a good time to address these
issues.
"We're getting the sewers in
and when the economy comes
back there will be redevelopment.
We can do it now without a lot of
pressure'from developers or real
estate people," Cinque said.
The height controversy began
Dec. 15 when the Planning Com-


mission granted Peter Rosasco an
across-the-board, nine-foot,
three-inch height limit variance
for a Hampton Inn near mile
marker 48, bayside.
Rosasco's development team
requested nine variances'to the
city's 37-foot height limit -
including a lobby to be built more
than 57-feet tall and a retail tower
that would stand nearly 59 feet
tall.

But Rosasco withdrew the appli-

Cinque said the whole debate
was blown out of proportion and
that perhaps many residents were
unaware of the 25 percent


allowance, which allows the
planning director to grant a vari-
ance 25 percent above the height
limit without commission
approval.

Upper Keys: Nobody


owns 'Conch Republic'


Supporters
expected at
today's hearing
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

Robert DiGiorgio said he and
other members of the Upper Keys
Business Group are optimistic as
they begin a legal battle today to
decide who, if anyone, owns the
rights to a "Conch Republic" cel-
ebration.
DiGiorgio expects a large
gathering of fellow Upper Keys
business owners and supporters
to attend the pre-trial hearing set
for 3:30 p.m-. today at the
Plantation Key courthouse.
Some of them incorporate
"Conch Republic" in some form
in their own businesses, meaning
the outcome of this property
rights case could have far-reach-
ing effects throughout the Keys.
"We're very optimistic. We
don't see how one individual can
own the term 'Conch Republic,'"
DiEiorgio said. "But I'm not
qualified to say what intellectual
property is. I'm ignorant of that."
And that is the crux of the law-
suit against Peter Anderson, a
Key West resident who since
1990 has produced the annual
Conch Republic Independence
Celebration in April in Key West.
The 10-day event marks the
Keys' symbolic secession from
the United States in 1982 follow-
ing the installation of a U.S.
Border Patrol blockade in Florida
City.
Anderson was made "secre-
tary general of the Conch
Republic" in a proclamation by
then-Key West Mayor Capt. Tony
Tarracino, and Anderson has
made his living from the festival
and selling Conch Republic pass-
ports, flags and other merchan-
dise.
In 2007,,.The Upper Keys
group tried to organize its own
event, called "Conch Republic
Days of the Northernmost
Territories," and coordinate it
with Anderson's festival.
But talks broke down as sides
haggled over money. Members of
the Upper Keys group said
Anderson wanted half the festi-
val's proceeds, while Anderson


said the group offered him $3,000
to help organize the event but
never agreed to a contract.
In February 2008, Anderson
sent a cease-and-desist letter to
the group, claiming he was "the
sole owner of the rights to market
Key West and the Florida Keys as
the Conch Republic...and the
right to develop and plan Conch
Republic-themed events."
The rights center around 18
years of "use and defense" of his
intellectual properties, Anderson
claims.
But the business group filed
suit, claiming Anderson does not
own such rights, and that he ille-
gally influenced the Monroe
County Tourist Development
Council to deny funding for the
Upper Keys event. The group has
since dismissed the TDC. as a
defendant.
"We're a nonprofit and we're
not trying to make any money on
this," said business group presi-
dent Jim Turner shortly after the
suit was filed. "We're just trying
to bring some more business here
and put some more heads in beds.
It's very sad that a bitter person is
trying to stop that."
In the suit, the group claims
the term "Conch Republic" is in
the public domain. Members
refer to a Webster's Online
Dictionary entry, using the
Wikipedia online encyclopedia as
their source, that defines the term
as "an imaginary or not generally
recognized nation or perhaps
micronation existing in- the

Northernmost
Territories of the
Conch Republic.
' The Upper Keys
Business Group is
taking Key Wester
-, Peter Anderson to
p court over the.
right to use the
name "Conch
Republic." The
group and
Anderson have
been unable to
reach agreement
on the issue; so
it's going to
court.

Contributed photo
Florida Keys."
The suit also states Anderson
has no formal registration, trade-
mark or copyright for any Conch
Republic-related items and that
his ownership rights are "nothing
more than his interpretation of an
historical event and as such are
not copyrightable."
Howard Kolbenheyer, vice
president of the group and owner
of Snapper's restaurant in Key
Largo, said Anderson has not
objected . to a Conch Republic
independence event held at
Snapper's for the past 19 years, a
fact also mentioned in the law-
suit.
Anderson also apparently has-
n't had a problem with at least
one fellow purveyor of Conch
Republic merchandise.
Ronald Maggio operates
www. kingof conch. com,
where he refers to himself as the
"self-proclaimed King of the
Conch Republic" and where he
sells passports, flags, T-shirts and
other souvenirs.
Last week, Maggio sent to The
Reporter a "royal decree" strip-
ping Anderson "of any and all
titles and positions within our
government" and stating that "all
Conchinians have the sovereign
God-given right to use our name
in any and all manor and purpose
in accordance with the ideals of
our country."
Pre-trial motions in the case
will be offered on Plantation Key
today before Circuit Court Judge
Luis Garcia.

1998 Groundhog Day Storm


School cancelled;
thousands were
without power
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.con'
The Groundhog Day Storm
of 1998 was called the most
powerful storm to hit the Keys
in recent memory, causing
widespread damage and
killing a boater on Stock
Island.
Mayor Jack London
declared a state of emergency
at 8:15 p.m. on Monday, Feb.
2, 1998, and on Tuesday, a
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment disaster team headed
here from Tallahassee to
assess the damage.
As with this week's freak
storm, which also hit on the
first Monday in February


(which also happened to be
Groundhog Day) residents of
the Keys had almost no warn-
ing: the storm seemed to come
out of nowhere, and at a nor-
mally tranquil time of the
year.
But the 1998 storm was
definitely worse.
Power was out in much of
the Keys on the Tuesday after
the 1998 storm, and school
was cancelled for kids Keys-
wide.
Marathon was the hardest
hit this week, with the
strongest winds blowing in
from the gulf north of the
Marathon airport.
In 1998, Key West saw
much more rain, with 2.43
inches recorded on that
Monday night, as compared to
.81 inches this year. And one
man lost his life.


The Keynoter reported in
the Feb. 4, 1998 edition of the
paper that a commercial fish-
erman named John Herndon,
age 35, died oh Stock Island
when he was crushed between
his boat and a dock while try-
ing to tie his boat to pilings.
And there were tornadoes
confirmed that night in 1998
on Grassy Key, at the Palm
Condominiums at mile marker
79 and at Harry Harris Park in
Tavernier. Some residents had
*also reported seeing funnel
clouds over the water on
Tuesday afternoon.
Only a few businesses lost
power in the storm this week,
but in the Groundhog Day
Storm of 1998, thousands of
residents were without elec-
tricity. The Florida Keys
Electric Cooperative and City
Electric System spent the next
day trying to restore power
throughout the Keys.


This house next to Curry Hammock State Park in Marathon had
its roof destroyed in the Groundhog Day Storm of 1998. It was
one of several buildings in the Middle Keys that sustained
major damage on Monday, Feb. 2, of that year.

Donie Lee nabs
robbery suspect
while off duty
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Key West Police Chief
Donie Lee spotted a robbery
suspect while he was off-duty
on Saturday and secured the
man's arrest.
Lee spotted 25-year-old
James John Kelly near the
intersection of Duval Street
and Truman Avenue after
receiving a "be on the look-
out" over his radio. Lee fol-
lowed the suspect and called
for backup, which led to the
arrest.
"It's all a matter of being
in the right place at the right
time," Lee said. "It shows
that we're never really off
duty."
Detectives had warrants
for Kelly following a robbery
and theft on Jan. 25. Kelly
allegedly pried a wallet from
a man's hand after asking for
money and was also found to
be in possession of electron-
ics that were reported stolen.

Feds sue Florida for $2.5 mill


Say state sold
drivers' personal
information
The Miami Herald

The federal government is
suing Florida to collect a more
than $2.5 million penalty for ille-
gally selling drivers' personal
information.
The Justice Department sued
the state and the Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles on Thursday in U.S.


'.4


District Court in Miami.
The suit alleges the state ille-
gally disclosed 30 niillion motor
vehicle records containing driv-
ers' personal information from
May 13, 2003, to at least Oct. 1,
2004. The information was sold
to companies and to individuals.
Ann Nucatola, a spokeswoman
for the state highway department,
had no comment on the suit.
A state that violates the law
protecting drivers' personal infor-
mation could be subject to a civil
penalty of up to $5,000 a day,


imposed by the U.S. attorney
general.
Earlier this month, the state set-
tled a class-action lawsuit brought
by four South Florida motorists
who sued over the release of their
personal information.
Under the settlement, drivers
who held a license, car registra-.
tion or state-issued ID from June
1, 2000, through Sept. 30, 2004,
will get a one-time credit of $1
when they register or renew a
registration between July 1 and
June 30, 2010. The lawyers who
filed the case will share $2.85
million in legal fees.

Keys waters on your own,
Boat Rentals in Paradise may
be the place for you.
Located at 11585
Overseas Highway in
Marathon, near D'Asign.
Source, the new rental busi-
ness has five boats, two
kayaks and two Yamaha
WaveRunners for rent.
The boats, which range in
size from 20-26 feet, rent for

they were able to open a

work," Goring says.

Fired funeral
company employee
says law on his side
The Miami Herald

A Boca Raton man is suing his
former employer, the Florida sub-
sidiary of a national funeral home
company, claiming he was fired
in violation of a new state law
that allows people with concealed
weapons permits to have their
firearms locked in their cars on
workplace property.
The case is believed to be the
first in South Florida since the


law took effect on July 1.
Steven Collazo of Boca Raton
is seeking unspecified financial
damages over his firing by SCI
Funeral Services of Florida.
"He was fired from a job that
he liked and excelled at, and
needed," said Marc Wites,
Collazo's lawyer. "It shouldn't
have happened."
Collazo's primary job at SCI
Funeral Services was removing
and delivering human remains.
He has since gotten a job as a lim-
ousine driver.
Here's what Collazo's lawsuit
claims happened: Two SCI man-
---) "-


agers told Collazo in late
November that two unidentified
people spotted him with a gun in
his pocket on company property
in Pompano Beach.
Collazo denied the charge and
offered to showy the managers the
gun in his vehicle. The managers
declined the offer.
Despite Collazo assuring the
managers he never removed the
gun from his car, he was fired.
The state attorney general's
office can sue employers to force
them to comply with the law, but
no lawsuits have been filed since
the law passed, spokeswoman
Sandi Copes said in an e-mail.

Flag Football
Championship this
week in Key West
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy @ keynoter.com

For most of the country, foot-
ball season ended with the
Pittsburgh Steelers' dramatic
Super Bowl XLIII victory
Sunday. In Key West, though,
there's still a week to go.
After three days of team-
building activities and island
exploration, the 18th Annual
Kelly McGillis Classic Inter-
national Women's & Girls' Flag
Football Championship is set to
kick off today.
Tournament organizer Diane
Beruldsen said many lessons
learned on the playing field can
translate to a woman's everyday
life. The IWFFA rules allow for
blocking from the shoulder to the
waist, for instance.
"Typically, women have a
hard time confronting their co-
workers. In the workforce this is
something you need to over-
come," she said.
Having a woman at the helm
as quarterback is also helpful,
Beruldsen says.
"Some women have a hard
time taking direction from other
women. You learn the quarter-
back is the boss and whatever she
calls, you run," she said.
These, and other aspects of
flag football, Beruldsen believes,
leads to the empowerment of its
female participants in everyday
life.
"We can teach" these females
leadership skills so they can bet-
ter compete in the political and
business world, so we can have
female influence and one day
world peace," she said.
Twenty-one teams from the
Keys and all around the world are
in the Southernmost City to take
part in the weeklong tournament
named after the famous actress
and owner of Kelly's Caribbean
Bar, Grill & Brewery on
Whitehead Street. McGillis
starred in "Top Gun" and "The
Accused," among other films.
She lent her name to the event

Actress Kelly McGillis lent her

football tournament in 1999
and even quarterbacked a

2001.
in 1999 and has been personally
involved 'with its planning since
then. She even hit the playing
field in 2000 and 2001 as the
quarterback of a celebrity team
called-"Loose Women."
"It's very kind of her to travel
here to this tournament and be
raffled off and Lord knows what
else," Beruldsen said. "She's sup--
porting us because we're women
and we are doing what we love
and she's all for that."
For the first time in three
years, McGillis will be in Key
West to partake in the festivities.
She's scheduled to be the grand
marshal for the Fairvilla Players
Parade, in which players proceed
down Duval Street beginning at 5
p.m. today. A lucky winner will
even go on a brunch "date" with
McGillis and six friends Sunday
at La Te Da.
Play begins Thursday at 9:30
a.m. at Wickers Field in Key
West, and runs until 6:30 p.m.
Friday's schedule is the same,
while Saturday games run from 8
a.m. until 8 p.m. and on Sunday
from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m. There are
divisions for players age 8 and
up, with varying levels of experi-
ence.
A number of social and
fundraising events are being held
this week to coincide with the
tournament. That includes a
Relay For Life event scheduled

for Friday at 9 p.m. at Fat
Tuesday on Duval Street.
The Brooklyn native
Beruldsen first saw flag football
being played in 1978 and said "it
was love at first sight." Within a
year she was on a team, and with-
in five years so many women in
the New York area were interest-
ed that she started the Brooklyn
Women's Flag Football League.
When Beruldsen moved to
Key West, her passion for the
game came with her. She started a


league there in 1990 and in 1991
arranged the first tournament. In
1997, Beruldsen founded the
International Women's Flag
Football Association - and it's
truly become a global game.
Teams from Canada, Mexico
and Europe have played in the
tournament over the years.

Tough


loss by


1 basket


Dolphins erase
28-point deficit,
but still miss
BY: RYAN McCARTHY
rmmcarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
basketball team lost two games
over the weekend by a com-
.bined three points.
First came a district loss
Friday to Miami- Christian
School, 35-34, when sophomore
Nate Kitchen missed a shot to
win the game at the buzzer.
On Monday night, the
Dolphins overcame a 28-point
first half deficit to force over-
time against Florida Christian
School. Up by as much as five
points in the extra period, the
lead slipped away and Marathon
lost 61-59.
Coach Kevin Freeman
praised the team's play in his
absence. He was suspended for
two games after being ejected
from a Jan. 26 matchup against
Coral Shores High School.
"I thought this was our best
game all year from what I heard.
Being down 28 points in the first
half, to come back," Freeman
said of the Florida Christian
game. "We've been playing bet-
ter the last two weeks and our
practices have been good."
Freeman said he hopes the
result will be a strong finish to
the regular season and a solid
showing in the District 16 tour-
nament.
"They weren't happy to lose,
but they're getting more confi-
dent," he said. "We were 1-7 in

Conchs playing



in district tourney


56-33 win over
Coral Park caps
14-4 regular season
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Hoping to reach the state
playoffs for the first time in
more than a decade, the Key
West High School girls bas-
ketball team will play Edison
in the first round of the
District 16-4A tournament at 8
tonight at the Monsignor Pace
gym in Opa-locka.


"I feel we can get second
place for sure, or win it," said
Glenn Hayes Sr., coach of the
14-4 Conchs.
In other games today, St.
Brendan plays Mater Academy
and Westland Hialeah faces
Reagan. Pace, which has -the
best district winner, got a first-
.round bye. The semifinals will
be played Friday and the finals
Saturday night. The first two
finishers will advance to the
regional tournament, with the
winner playing at home.
"The ladies are ready and


very focused - they remember
last year, and don't want that
to happen again," Hayes said,
referring to a two-point loss to
St. Brendan in the semifinals
last season.
Key West ended its regular
season last Friday with a 56-
33 victory at Coral Park.
Chelsea Storr led the way with
26 points; Alicia Arrazola had
16; Ja'Taure Mathis 7, Daphne
Barnett, Fran Hicks and Kim
Jones 2 each and Fiorella
Bravo 1.

Key West hosts eight teams


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


The Key West High School
wrestling team will be the host
for the District 16-lA tourna-
ment Friday at the Bobby
Menendez Gym. The first
matches begin at noon, on three
mats, and the event is expected
to last five hours.
Conchs coach John Moeller
said that, of the eight teams
coming to Key West, Doral
Academy, Coral Shores and
Belen Jesuit should provide the
toughest competition. The
Conchs have already wrestled
against the Hurricanes twice
this -season, with each team


winning one.
To advance to the regional
tournament, a wrestler must
finish in the top four in his
weight class - and Moeller
believes all 14 of his wrestlers
could advance. Last season,
only eight advanced.*
Last Friday and Saturday,
the Conchs competed in a tour-
nament at Jupiter that featured
talented teams from bigger
schools. "I don't even want to
talk about it," Moeller said, but
then he did.
"That was probably tougher
than the regionals will be. It
was the first time I've gone to. a


.tournament, and nobody
placed. That's how difficult it
was. Several of our guys did
well, but all made mistakes that
cost them a match."
Max Llama, at 112 pounds,
went 2-2, but might have fin-
ished in the top three if it had-
n't been for a technique prob-
lem. "He gets his hips in the
wrong place, and that allows
his opponent to get a reversal
and put him on his back,"
Moeller said. "But next year
he's going to be really tough."
Paul Leatherwood (215
pounds), Ben Covan (135) and
Oscar Fernandez (125) also
were 2-2.

bounds play to try and take the
lead. Kitchen hauled in the
pass and took .a shot, but
missed.
Monday's game was a dif-
ferent story, as the Dolphins
fell behind big early and spent
most of the game chipping
away at the deficit.
Marathon trailed 25-8 after
one quarter and by as much as
28 in the second. But the
Dolphins proceeded to chip 15
points off before the half and
trailed 35-22.
Second half pressure led to
fast break baskets for the
Dolphins and the lead was
down to five after three quar-
ters, 45-43. Marathon


outscored the Patriots in a
low-scoring fourth quarter, 8-
3, to force overtime.
Kenyatta Scott had a
chance to tie the game at the
free throw line, but missed
both shots. Junior center
Travis Leachman hauled in the
rebound, got into a scramble
for the ball and was called for
traveling with .8 seconds
remaining, sealing the game
for the Patriots.
Scott scored a career high
20 points in Monday's loss.
Junior Nyran Ross had 13
points, while Leachman had
11 points and 13 rebounds.
Marathon is scheduled to
visit Ransom Everglades
today at 7 p.m. before a sea-
son-ending visit to Key West
High School Saturday.

Monsignor Pace is ranked


ninth in the state in 4A by the
Florida Sports Writers
Association and Key West is
13th. The Conchs lost to Pace,
58-42, in December, but
played most of that game
without freshman standout
Shaniya Watson.

Eagles beat Canes' JV

ICS closes out","
season with
48-38 win
Keynoter Staff


Island Christian's Eagles
ended the boys basketball sea-
son with a kick Friday, pulling
out to a 48-38 win over the
Coral Shores junior varsity.
Island Christian played a
low-key schedule this year,
with Aaron Izaguirre the only
veteran senior on the roster.
"We've got a bunch of
ninth-graders and some guys
even younger," said ICS coach
Robert Lucas. "We played
some programs that are com-
parable to ours, but trying to
play a full varsity schedule
would have been too much."
The finale of the ICS varsi-
ty against the Coral Shores JV
was an evenly matched bout,
with the Eagles taking a 20-16
halftime lead over the Canes.
Coral Shores rallied in the
third quarter, with Lenin
Troncesco scoring four of his
team-high 10 points in the
stanza. Andre Whitehead
added a 3-pointer as Coral
Shores grabbed a 31-30 lead.
Aaron Izaguirre scored
seven of his team-best 13
points as the Eagles finished
the contest on a strong 18-7

Time to try Hawk Channel


Fish moving
in mass all
along the area

You're either hot or you're
not! That's been the status for
angles this past week according
to all of the reports I've received.
For some, it has been a great
week of fishing and others just
can't seem to find any good num-
bers of the fish they are looking
for. That's why they call it fish-
ing instead of catching.
For the most part, high winds
at times and cold temperatures
hampered fishing. This has
slowed down the fish activity, as
fish are cold-blooded and actual-
ly slow down in the cold.
Cold also changes patterns for
fish location throughout the day.
In the early mornings, late after-
noon and nighttime, they are in the
deeper water to remain warmer.
In the heat of the day, they are
moving up onto the shallower
waters such as banks and flats to
obtain some of the radiant sun-
shine. Even though this past week
has been rather warm, the waters
have been cooled quite a bit.
As the first week of the cool
temperatures hit, the waters did
not chill down until late in the
week. Well, now it will take a lit-
tle time to warm them back up
again as the waters change slow-
ly compared to air temps.
Those anglers who understand
this have been doing quite well,
especially in the bay waters
where this activity in the winter is
common. Snapper, trout, redfish.
as well as a host of other species
have been caught throughout the
week.
Mackerel are still just about as


tthick as
Ca you can get
them and
actually
make it dif-
ficult for
". anglers to
- - mess up.
The only
thing they
m -s a will do to
you. is
a, cause you
tp become
Dave Navarro an expert at
knot tying
as they cut off almost more rigs
than you can tie.
Bayside of the islands is a com-
fortable area to fish yet many will
not venture there for fear of the
shallows that are scattered about.
Hawk Channel is active, but
only in certain locations. Now
don't expect for me to tell you
just where they are; not because I
don't want to but because the fish
in the channel are moving in
mass all along the area. I could
not tell you exactly where they
would be if I wanted to.
What I can tell you is that
there is a goodly number of a
mixed variety of fish in the chan-
nel, which is a good option if the
reef is too rough for fishing. The
key is to run the area with your
fish finder until you come across
some of them.
Reports from the reef have
been the most up and down of
any area, even more so than off-
shore.
Yellowtail have been caught
in good numbers by a few anglers
and almost nonexistent for others.
Guides that I have talked with
report low numbers but huge in
size. Three to five-pound fish
have been the norm for guides


fishing to the west using 'Cy
Flies' on a flat line tipped with a
tiny piece of meat.
The fish have not been balling
around the stem of th'e bpat but
rather well back into the chum
line. This takes more patience as
well as skill to successfully cap-
ture them.
This week's free fishing semi-
nar is on yellowtail and reef snap-
pers. It is being held Sunday
evening from 6 to 8 p.m. at our
Marine Educational Center, 3740
Overseas Highway.
One species that has been
good (although most anglers have
not been catching them, just get-
ting their butts kicked) have been
some big groupers on the deep
edges of the reef line.
For those who drop live baits
or rigged baits down to the bot-
tom on a heavy line for the
chance of a grouper, most have
been lucky enough to hook one or
two. The problem, from the bro-
ken rods that I have seen in the
last week, is that the fish are win-
ning. Some of the larger catches
have been in excess of 50 pounds
with a couple of black groupers
topping 70 pounds reported. You
hook into one of these on 30# test
and you have to be lucky or good
or both.
If you are going to try for
these fish, it may be time to clean
the dust off of your big rig in the
closet and put it to use. If you
hook into one of them, use cau-
tion getting the rod out of the
holder or you may be seeing the
dentist sooner than you thought.,
